Around the world of Adaptation climate actions : A series produced by Novethic in collaboration with Climate Chance !

Novethic, in collaboration with Climate Chance, offers you a special world tour to see how certain regions, cities or countries are organizing themselves to face the first impacts of climate change. Focus on 5 of our adaptation case studies from which the examples developed are taken.

Novethic published a world tour of adaptation throughout the week, from 27 to 31 July, based on 5 of our regional and city case studies, taken from our Adaptation booklet, produced in partnership with Comité 21, of our Climate Action Report 2019.

You will find these 5 articles on their website.

This publication was an opportunity to highlight a key and topical issue that is often under-reported in the media : adaptation or how regions, cities or countries are organizing themselves to deal with the first impacts of climate change.

The Observatory‘s deciphering and analyses have made it possible to produce this series from which the examples developed are drawn.
